1) To reduce the creases of the laundry, this cycle regulates the water temperature and performs a soft
wash and spin phase. The appliance adds some rinses. This programme is not compatible with drying.
2) During this cycle the drum rotates slowly to ensure a gentle washing. It can seem that the drum
doesn't rotate or doesn't rotate properly. Consider this as a normal functioning of the appliance.
3) Set the spin speed. Make sure it agrees with the laundry. If you set No Spin option the only drain
phase is available.
4) This programme is for daily use and has lowest energy and water consumption maintaining a good
washing performance.
5) The washing programme Katoen Eco at 60ºC with a load of 8 kg and the drying programme Katoen
Drogen are the reference programmes for the data entered in the energy label, in compliance with EEC
92/75 standards.
The water temperature of the washing phase may differ from the temperature declared

6. CONSUMPTION VALUES
The data of this table are approximate. Different causes can change the
data: the quantity and type of laundry, the water and ambient tempera-
ture.
At programme start the display shows the duration programme for the
maximum load capacity.
During the washing phase the programme duration is automatically cal-
culated and can be greatly reduced if the laundry load is lower than the

the programme duration exceeds 2 hours; real load 1 kg, the pro-
gramme duration don’t reach 1 hour).
When the appliance is calculating the real programme duration a dot
blinks in the display.

• Divide the laundry in: white, coloured,
synthetics, delicates and wool.
• Obey the washing instructions that
are on the laundry care labels.
• Do not wash together white and
coloured items.
• Some coloured items can discolour
with the first wash. We recommend
that you wash them separately for the
first times.
• Button up pillowcases, close zippers,
hooks and poppers. Tie up belts.
• Empty the pockets and unfold the
items.
• Turn inside out multilayered fabrics,
wool and items with painted
illustrations.
• Remove hard stains.
• Wash with a special detergent heavy
soil stains.
• Be careful with the curtains. Remove
the hooks or put the curtains in a
washing bag or pillowcase.
• Do not wash in the appliance laundry
without hems or with cuts. Use a
washing bag to wash small and/or
delicate items (e.g. underwired bras,
belts, tights, etc. ).
• A very small load can cause balance
problems with the spin phase. If this
occurs, adjust manually the items in
the tub and start the spin phase
again.
13.2 Stubborn stains
For some stains, water and detergent is
not sufficient.
We recommend that you remove these
stains before you put the items in the
appliance.
Special stain removers are available. Use
the special stain remover that is
applicable to the type of stain and fabric.
www.aeg.com
22
Page: 22
13.3 Detergents and additives
• Only use detergents and additives
specially made for washing machines:
– powder detergents for all types of
fabric,
– powder detergents for delicate
fabrics (40 °C max) and woollens,
– liquid detergents, preferably for
low temperature wash
programmes (60 °C max) for all
types of fabric, or special for
woollens only.
• Do not mix different types of
detergents.
• To help the environment, do not use
more than the correct quantity of
detergent.
• Obey the instructions that you find on
the on packaging of these products.
• Use the correct products for the type
and colour of the fabric, the
programme temperature and the
level of soil.
• If your appliance has not the
detergent dispenser with the flap
device, add the liquid detergents with
a dosing ball (supplied by the
detergent's manufacturer).
13.4 Ecological hints
• Set a programme without the
prewash phase to wash laundry with
normal soil.
• Always start a washing programme
with the maximum load of laundry.
• If necessary, use a stain remover when
you set a programme with a low
temperature.
• To use the correct quantity of the
detergent, check the water hardness
of your domestic system
13.5 Water hardness
If the water hardness in your area is high
or moderate, we recommend that you
use a water softener for washing
machines. In areas where the water
hardness is soft it is not necessary to use
a water softener.
